About mold in food

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), mold in food can pose serious health risks. Some molds cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems, while others, under certain conditions, produce mycotoxins—poisonous substances that can lead to illness. Mold’s root threads can penetrate deeply into foods, especially those with high moisture content, making it unsafe to simply cut off the moldy part. The USDA recommends discarding moldy foods, particularly soft fruits, vegetables, and meats, to avoid potential health hazards. Proper food storage and regular inspection are crucial in preventing mold growth and ensuring food safety.
